Which color of the switch button will you choose for a diving flashlight?

Hello everyone,

One of our manufacturers just made a new diving flashlight. Which color of the switch button is the popular for diving? Red? Green or Blue?

Thank you.

Light Green or light blue as they will give more visual contrast at depth, red will appear dark at depth. If the light body is dark, make the switch a pale colour as colours will shift underwater.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.
